Chris works as a technician in the Manchester Unviversity Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE) mechanical workshop.
Chris studied Aerospace Engineering at Macclesfield College and then undertook an apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering. After working in the MACE mechanical engineering lab, Chris moved to the MACE CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) workshop where his main focus is overseeing their 3D printing.
“In MACE we do quite a lot of work with Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI) to 3D print prototype prosthetics. We have also worked with a dental surgeon to make prototypes for our dental students to practice on, as well as working with architects and the archaeology department here at the University. Our 3D printing lab is the biggest in the University, so we are always busy!”
